BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Three more people have been arrested and accused of conspiring to use counterfeit chips to get cash, according to agents with the Mississippi Gaming Commission.
The Sun Herald reports that Larry Lee Cronk, 36, of D'Iberville, and Anjali Jones, 60, and Kenneth Rusty Lee, 29, both of Gulfport, are accused of participating in the conspiracy with a woman arrested earlier this week at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Casino.
The investigation was made public after the arrest last Sunday night of Jolanda Michelle Hart, 41, of D'Iberville.
State gaming agents arrested Hart after she allegedly tried to cash in $100 counterfeit chips.
Authorities say the other three are accused of cashing in the bogus chips, or attempting to cash them, at the Margaritaville and other Gulf Coast casinos.
